Project List for 100 Mitzvot

Here are other mitzvah project opportunities, other than the projects organized on specific dates. A project can be as short as a few hours. The coordinators will help you find a date and organize the details for a specific selection. Think about ways you can incorporate one of these ideas on your own or with a group. If you have any questions, contact the person listed or email hidden; JavaScript is required.
